Discord ID: The Maggot Guy#3950
Admin Discord ID: These things never say who bans you which needs to be fixed
Ban Type: Mute
Ban Length: Mutes don’t have a length which needs to be fixed
Ban Date: 9-28-2020
Ban Reason: Admin’s finger slipped and they hit 2 instead of 1 when giving me a warning and I guess that went over the threshold for auto-muting which means a permanent ban
You have received a warning in BeeStation 13.
please stop pinging randomly
Appeal Reason: A trialmin was talking to someone in #questions and accidentally pinged (a)coder instead of (a)maintainer, which meant they accidentally pinged over a hundred people. To give you an idea of how many people have the coder role, even I, who has never coded anything in byond, was pinged by this. I have to take an extra strong sleep pill every night otherwise I literally don’t get tired until 5 AM and this pill just about knocks me out in an hour, and I think it’d been around 30 minutes since I’d taken it, and it was going off about full force.
So why was I still online you may ask? Because I’m a fucking idiot sometimes, add on to that the extreme sleepiness from the medicine and you have a recipe for disaster. Everyone was understandably freaking out about this mass ping, and I, with all my wisdom and intelligence of 2 AM, decided it would be funny to compare this to a mentor ping by actually pinging all the mentors.
Surprisingly nobody was actually offended by this, at least as far as I could tell up until the mute. Also it looks like the admin hit 2 instead of 1, giving me 2 warnings for 1 slip-up.
I haven’t done anything like this for over a month, which I hope goes to show that I’ve changed and don’t just randomly ping people anymore. Everyone makes mistakes, and I don’t think a single slip up, in response to another (albeit accidental) mass ping, at 2 AM, while almost knocked out on sleep meds is so indicative of future behavior that it warrants a permaban, even with my previous history. I don’t act like this anymore, and I don’t think a single sleep deprived mess-up warrants a full and total ban from the entire discord (including mentor) for an unlimited time.
